(**)You can register for the test as long as there are still places available; if there are not, you can sign up for the next session.
Who can take the TIL-I testThe score obtained by applicants in the TIL-I test (Test in Laib – Engineering) is only valid for enrolment in academic year 2022/2023. For this reason, when you register for the TIL-I test, you must be attending your last year of high school (i.e. you should be getting your high school diploma in the summer of 2022 according to the Italian school calendar) or you must have already earned your high school diploma.
How to register for the admission testIn order to register for the test, you must register on the Apply@polito platform starting from 25th January 2022. After registering for the admission test, you need to pay the specific registration fee respecting the terms and deadlines that will be indicated in the “Call for applications for admissions to the Bachelor’s degree programmes of the Engineering area”.
Taking a TIL test
We remind you that under the Apply@polito section called “Select your course” you must necessarily select 5 Bachelor’s degree programmes of the Engineering area and you must rank them in order of preference. The deadline for adding one or more programmes, changing the order of preference or substituting a choice is Wednesday 31st August 2022, and in any case before starting the enrolment process, regardless of the TIL-I test date.
Payments methods
The TIL-I registration fee is € 50.00. The amount paid cannot be reimbursed under any circumstances, nor can it be considered valid for TIL sessions other than the one for whichyou have registered.
You can pay your registration fee with one of the following payment methods:
  1. Credit cards (or other payment methods available on the PagoPA platform) generating an immediate payment;
  2. Pre-printed notice of payment (MAV on the PagoPA platform), generating a deferred payment.
Applicants who pay using the method illustrated under number 2) must go back to the Apply@polito platform and enter the payment date in a specific field (self-declaration in compliance with art. 46 and 47 of DPR no. 445/2000).
Failure to specify the payment date on the Apply@polito platform entails that the payment is not valid. Both the payment and the self-declaration must take place before the deadlines illustrated in art. 3 of the Call for applications. Should the self-declaration be found to be false or incorrect, the registration for the test, or the test itself, will be cancelled.
TIL-I (Test in Laib – Engineering)
All Engineering Bachelor’s degree programmes are capped to a predefined number of student places. Offers of admission will be made to the applicants who get the best scores in the TIL test until all places are full. The TIL test is compulsory for all Engineering Bachelor’s degree programmes. It is an individual test which is different for each applicant. It is made up of automatically and randomly selected computer interface questions. All tests have an equivalent level of difficulty.It takes place in the computer laboratories of Politecnico di Torino.
How to prepare for the admission testTo learn about the prior knowledge requirements for the admission test, check the following webpage: http://orienta.polito.it/en/entry_requirements

TIL-I test format and scoring This year the test format has been changed. A new section called “Basic technical knowledge” has been introduced. It includes questions on foundations of computer science, basic principles of graphic representation and concepts of culture of technology to be answered in 12 minutes. Moreover, the other sections of the test will have a different structure.
Applicants have 1 hour and a half to answer 42 questions. Questions are divided in 4 sections covering 4 different disciplines. The number of questions and the time limits are organized as follows:   
  • 16 Mathematics questions - 36 minutes 
  • 10 Reading comprehension and logical reasoning questions - 20 minutes 
  • 10 Physics questions - 22 minutes
  • 6 Basic Technical knowledge questions – 12 minutes

Each question has 5 possible answers (marked with letters A,B,C,D,E), only one of which is correct.   

The score is based on the following criteria: 
  • 1 point for each correct answer 
  • A penalty of 0,25 points (-0,25) for each incorrect answer 
  • 0 points for each unanswered question 

TIL-I results
The results of the TIL-I test are made public through the publication of: 
  • one list of all applicants who have scored higher than or equal to the guaranteed threshold and are therefore admitted the programme they have chosen as their first preference. These lists will be published at the end of each TIL-I session.
  • one ranking list for the allocation of residual student places. This list includes the names of the applicants who have been exempted from taking the TIL-I test (article 13 of the Call for applications for admissions to the Bachelor’s degree programmes in Engineering area)
Ranking list publication: Tuesday 6th September 2022

Admission thresholds Guaranteed threshold for admission to the Bachelor’s degree programmes of the Engineering Area60/100 to be admitted to the Bachelor’s degree programme chosen as your first preference. In this case you can enrol at Politecnico startingfrom Tuesday 29th March 2022. 

Minimum admission threshold for being included on the ranking list 20/100:this is the minimum admission threshold for being included on the ranking list. If you pass this threshold but your score is less than 60/100, you can decide to wait until  6th September 2022, when the ranking list are published. You will then know if your position on the ranking list allows you to enrol at Politecnico. 
Alternatively, you can take the TIL-I test again in one or more subsequent sessions. 
In this case the score obtained in the latest test invalidates the score obtained in previous tests.
